OLC students were treated to a visit from the Central EMS (Emergency Medical Services) of Washington County. Craig Harvey and Zedok Crabbe are a Paramedic Team who serve all people living in Washington County and need emergency medical help. Craig and Z explained what to do in case of an emergency, and how the emergency services coordinate with other services including police and fire departments. Students also learned what training is needed to become a paramedic should they be interested in this profession. Craig and Z invited students outside to demonstrate their ambulance equipment. OLC will be coordinating with the EMS on delivering free Friends and Family CPR to interested students. – Julia Kilbourne
